After a period of stagnation, professional services companies in Ireland are optimistic for growth in the short term. This, however, is posing a significant challenge.

Recent local and international surveys have highlighted a number of challenges that must be addressed if businesses are to meet their stakeholders’ goals and objectives. Irish HR directors in professional services companies are facing many challenges.

At BearingPoint, we have implemented 1,300 SAP projects since 1984 and we were such a big advocate of SAP SuccessFactors™, we implemented it to help manage our own workforce of 4,000 people in over 20 European countries. SuccessFactors™ delivered by BearingPoint is helping HR and IT leaders in professional services businesses to meet their stakeholders’ goals and objectives - especially in the following areas:

Challenge Problem How SuccessFactors™ delivered by BearingPoint can help
Recruitment and workforce planning Expectations of employers are evolving and it’s getting harder to attract staff. Skills and talent shortages can have a serious impact on business performance.
  • Optimise recruiting efforts 
  • Deliver measurable results
  • Win new business in an ever more competitive landscape
Performance and talent management Many performance management practices aren’t flexible enough, can’t support continuous performance management or programmatically help identify future leaders.
  • Evaluate employee activity and performance against organisational strategy
  • Empower staff with continuous, meaningful feedback
  • Ease succession planning
Retaining and rewarding people Today employees change jobs more frequently and their needs are more diverse. Employers need to invest in employee satisfaction programmes in order to retain their most important assets – their people.
  • Create new strategies and programmes for flexible working, employee appreciation, managing staff engagement and compensation
  • Identify and retain best performers
Learning and development Professional services companies must ensure continuous up-skilling and development of their workforce.
  • Improve employee skills
  • Develop leaders
  • Reduce compliance risk
  • Better enable external audiences

The confluence of market and technology forces means the time is now right for companies to transform their HR delivery and make HR a strategic part of the business.
